As a part of End to End REST Assured Tutorial , in this post We will write first PUT request in REST assured.

I will strongly recommended you to learn basics of API testing from here.

To learn what is PUT request and how can you hit a PUT request in Postman tool, must refer this post.

We will update a booking details using “UpdateBooking” API provided by Restful Booker.

Refer Update Booking API documentation to understand how authentication and body need to be provided to request.

Below points summarize the above documentation :-

  1. We need to pass booking id for which you want to update details in URI. E.g. where “1” is booking id.
  2. Authentication token need to pass as cookie. Cookie name is “token” and value is generated auth token. ‘Cookie: token=<generatedToken>’.
  3. Pass the body with all details. Remember it is a PUT request which takes whole body like POST request.
